As storage space becomes limited for radioactive water from the Fukushima plant in Japan, the environment minister of Japan says there is one option, to dump it into the ocean.

There have been one million tonnes of contaminated water collected by Tokyo Electric Power Company since the tsunami and subsequent earthquake that crippled the plant back in 2011.

100,000 people had to evacuate and Japan was sent into a nuclear crisis.

Tokyo Electric Power Company says that storage space will run out by 2022.

The government has not formally decided what to do with the radioactive water.
